|To start things off, Brandon and Maria booked the Ihilani Resort for their wedding for mainly one reason: the sunset. Here in Hawaii, we are blessed with nice sunsets, but they are often hit or miss, depending on the weather. It's because of this that we were extremely stoked that after the ceremony, the couple was treated to easily the best sunset anyone of us has ever seen at the Ihilani!|
The little details throughout the day added lots of depth to the wedding. Brandon wore a Bazinga shirt, as a homage to one of Maria's favorite phrases. The couple chose their wedding date (July 6th) to coincide with Brandon's parents' anniversary, who they surprised at the reception with a chance to dance together on the dance floor. Pictures of Maria and Brandon's grandparents who passed away allowed for them to be present in spirit.
Brandon and Maria's crazy awesome wedding party made formals a blast, from staging a football stand-off, to clamoring over the rocks for group shots. Throw in the awesome sunset, and a reception full of laughter and you got yourself a pretty cool wedding :)
Congratulations you two!
